...almost there...

One week until the big 40! 
Thank you for all your wonderful comments regarding this milestone - I am almost prepared for the next decade...


What a glum week the weather has made, is the sun ever going to shine again? I have been busy busy busy making things to sell on Folksy - and can't get a decent photo of any of them without the sun! every time it does pop out I am either not at home, or after running to the sewing room it has buggered off again! Also, I think my hibernation instincts may be kicking in, I could sleep for England! (if only there was a job in the civil service with that very title...)

I am fed up with knitting this week - having made 2 stupid mistakes on 2 different socks I threw them into a plastic bag and hid them in the wool cupboard until I have the light and patience to undo them back the mistakes, so instead I became a little obsessed with Heart Making - All that Kirsty Allsop's fault! - and am even considering getting out my 20 odd year old cross stitch equipment, dusting it down, and selling it on e-bay! no, I am kidding, there are certain things a girl can never sell (can I still call myself a 'girl' after 40?)


Here are a few of my favorite hearts made this week...





Now - I need to wean myself off hearts...but what will I replace them with?????

I was 40 in January and I still think I'm a girl sometimes even a lass :) That Kirstie has a lot to answer for I can't stop sewing too!!

Since you've thought about dusting off the cross stitch stuff (me too, thanks Kirsty) why not make a kiss cushion - hearts and kisses, a lovely combination. Embrace your forties - they are fab!

Love the hearts you've made! I was 40 earlier this year and I don't feel any different (if that's any consolation!).

Age really is just a number... its the age you decide to be that determines how young you are :P
